All T&C technical articles must handle their subject matter objectively and use a noncommercial approach. You cannot promote one manufacturer’s equipment or technology or write only about your company’s equipment or materials. This prohibition, however, does not apply to non-vendor scientists or researchers who conduct independent studies or evaluations.
T&C technical articles convey practical or experimental information about processes, materials, or equipment that our readers use. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Tablets and tabletting
- Capsules and capsule filling
- Tablet and particle coating
- Particle and material characterization
- Regulatory compliance
- Tablet and capsule marking
- Testing and inspection
- Solid dosage tooling
Your article can discuss the results of your research or it can provide facts, ideas, and advice on selecting, operating, or troubleshooting equipment. Or it can simply provide the reader with insights on a process or test method. It may be as simple as providing a checklist. See some ideas below.
Select-and-apply articles: These types of articles help the reader select and apply a particular process, technology, or type of equipment. The facts help the reader make informed decisions. For instance, your article can

- Compare and contrast equipment or material
- Detail important criteria for selecting a process, equipment or materials
- Provide advice on troubleshooting existing processes, equipment or materials
Trends articles: In these types of articles, you discuss current trends in equipment design, production processes, test methods, or regulations. Your article can discuss broad changes within a technology or one portion of a particular technology or process.
Studies: These articles describe what you learned from conducting a study on formulation strategies, production methods, packaging, testing, or any other study related to tablet and capsule forms.
Tips: These are usually short articles in which you share your tips for solving a problem related to formulation, scale-up, processing, handling, equipment, or packaging.
